    Hey,

    I have a little question. I have a site that ranks awesome for subodomains (eg. super-keyword.site.com ranks 1 for "super keyword", and it happens with a lot of keywords). I have a lot of subdomains positioned high in SERP. Is there any chance of penalty from Google regarding this practice?

    Nope you won't get penalized that is completely fair. Subdomains rank well as you have noticed.

    Nope. However, if the niche is TOTALLY irrelevant to the root domain, there might be some devaluing (I highly believe this is true but you guys can prove me otherwise).

    Home Page:
    Subdomain is considered a different site (it comes historical times, when subdomains was the only cheap way to get you website). You can add as many subdomains you want, as long as they have quality content.

    The same goes for the page with and without the 3w.
